DC Regen from practical and personal experience.

Possible solution to Regen use with gearbox (Temporary Theory)
It occurred to me that if one was to cut power to the controller the motor will stop pulling or charging then one can change the gear higher or lower once the gear is engaged switch the power on with accelerator on..

Good luck with your project

50 amp going into a pack from 72 volt system is a nonsense. reliable Idiot proof REGEN is not available for EV with gearbox even with a clutch.How many of you are sitting on a Regen system still trying to work out why you didn't go series.

DC Regen from practical and personal experience.

The only way to see if using Regen and clutch will help make shift gears is to try it out. Personally i have my doubts ..think what will happen when Regen kicks in and you going up in gear you let the clutch fast and you will rip the gearbox to pieces. Funny some clutches will hold tight when you le...
